The 2015 harvest is Bordeaux’s best in years – The Wine Advocate says it is an “excellent vintage ... might beat the quality of 2005.” Don’t miss this remarkable taste that stole the show in Paris (and earned high marks at two other top French competitions).
The Brulatout family has crafted award-winning wines since 1961. Fifth-generation Daniel Brulatout, an advocate of sustainable farming and strict "non-interventionist" winemaking, famously strives to get the very best out of his family's vines. If his gold-medal record is any indication: mission accomplished.
His Cuvée Espessas (named for the district from which he sourced the fruit) is a classic blend of Merlot and Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, with all the deep color, full-fruit power and elegant structure you can expect from 2015. Fresh blackberry, mulberry and even blueberry characters mingle with nuances of slate and clove. Rounded tannins and a long finish make this the perfect partner for grilled steaks, roast game and full-flavored cheeses. Decant before serving, to fully release the complex aromas and flavors.
Bordeaux fans are already snapping up the wines from this critically acclaimed vintage – and a top gold medalist like this special release will disappear even more quickly. Order today.
